Overview

Nashville family band Cherryholmes found a winning formula on its 2007 Skaggs Family debut, Cherryholmes II: Black and White. Well versed in the classics, the sextet proved that they could kick out old-school bluegrass jams with the best of them, but it was their originals that stuck out through the flurry of slick picking. On Cherryholmes III: Don't Believe, Jere, Sandy Lee, Cia Leigh, B.J., Skip, and Molly Kate do away completely with the traditional, opting for a sleek batch of self-penned contemporary bluegrass numbers that lean closer to Nickel Creek and the Dixie Chicks than they do Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder. The lead-off track "I Can Only Love You (So Much)," delivered with grit and confidence by Cia Leigh, sets the tone, introducing a formidable "you done me wrong" theme that permeates more than a few cuts on the aptly titled Don't Believe. Forays into overly-earnest country flag-waving ("This Is My Son,") and gospel-tinged, Celtic-infused balladry ("The King as a Babe Comes Down") prove less successful, but a pair of barn-burning instrumentals ("Sumatra" and "Mansker Spree/O'Coughlin's Reel," along with a nifty cover of the Gram Parsons/Chris Hillman boot-stomper "Devil in Disguise," keeps this third trip down the aisle a worthwhile one.
